Livefan is a company you wouldn’t have heard of before (I hadn’t too). But they seem like an optimistic bunch — they’re out with a laptop that costs $777.
Make no mistake, it’s a great looking device with a thin body covered in metal. However, people that I know of will probably rather invest their $777 in other avenues.

Anyway, let’s take a quick look at the spec sheet of this device: it comes with a 13.3-inch IPS display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, which is not bad at all. It’s powered by the Intel Core 5Y10C dual-core processor, which should give it some decent battery life, in conjunction with a 4800mAh (7.4V) battery.
It also comes with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD which should keep things running at a brisk pace for a bit. Other specs include a 1.3 mega-pixel front camera and the usual suite of radio — Bluetooth, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac. Oh and of course, it runs Windows 10.
Not sure what the target market is with this kind of a price, but what is nice to see is Chinese tablet and laptop makers venturing out of their comfort zone (read: dual boot Z8300 tablets). The S1 is currently on pre-sale with shipping scheduled to begin 7th August.
